Exciting News & Birthday Sale

good-friend-book-front-copyFirst for the Exciting News-
So I know I’m really far behind on my post right now but I just had to get on and talk about my exciting news.  Before I left for Hawaii I created a Paper Bag Scrap-booking using the Good Friends Stamp Set.  I decided I wanted to enter it into the Scrap-booking Class Challenge that Stampin’ Up! was having.  I actually stayed up all night the night before Hawaii to finish the instructions and send it in.  Well yesterday I got a call and I won.  I’m so excited.  I was one of four winners and my project was posted today on our demonstrator site.  I have entered so many contests and it’s such an honor to finally win.  Plus the free stamp set of my choice doesn’t hurt either.  What’s even better is today is my Birthday so what a fun Birthday surprise.  You can check out all the information about this fun book and how to get your project for just $10.00 by clicking here.  Be watching for a special date that I’m going to add where you can come and make this fun project.  Just as an added bonus.

Aloha everyone.  I’m in beautiful Hawaii.  I’m heading out to go snorkeling today.  I’ll try to post pictures if I can.  I just want to say thanks again to all of my wonderful customers, hostess and down-line.  I wouldn’t be here with out you.  You are all awesome.  Let me know if you need anything.  I will still be back in time to finish up all the fun Sale-a-bration stuff.  See you soon.  Candice

dsc01457We had a wonderful day today in Maui.  Here is a picture of us on our Snuba Dive.  If you have never heard of it you really need to try it.  It’s a cross between snorkeling and scuba diving.  You are attached to a 20 foot hose so you get to go under the water and really see stuff, however you don’t have to be certified to do it.  We did it the last time we were in Hawaii and I really wanted to try it again.  I loved it and would love to take my kids sometime.  I think they would love it too.  We had plenty of time to snorkel as well which as really fun.

img_84771We also got to see beautiful Humpback whales and Green Sea Turtles. 

img_8531The rest of the day was spend driving up the beautiful coast.  Followed by dinner and an romantic walk on the beach.  It was a really wonderful day. 




I hope you enjoyed this little glimpse.  I will try and post more when I can’t.  But I don’t know how much Internet access I will have.  Aloha

Marvelous Monday 3-9-09

My Sister and I had a Game Night Friday night.  She sales Simply Fun which fun family games.  We thought it would be fun to use the new game night stamps and have a combo party.  If you would be interested in more information about her games you can check out her website at www.brigetudy.simplyfun.com.

game-night-folder-closedI wanted to create a fun project that would go along with the theme.  I found this folder created by Wendy Knowles in our awesome group.  I decided to give it a try.  Her project was all covered with the DSP, but I didn’t have enough so I decided to try it with paper that I stamped on.  She covered a file folder.

game-night-folder-openI found that this was a little more difficult with the solid paper verses the DSP and it was hard to fold and not have it bubble.  I still think that it turned out cute, but was more time consuming than I wanted for the party so I decided I needed to simplify.

game-night-scores-closedThis is the project I came up with.  It is really quite fast and easy.  It’s just one sheet of 8 1/2 x 11 paper folded around the note pad.  Then I added the DSP and some stamped paper.  I still added the cute black strip in the front like she had.  I used a crimped paper inbetween to give it a little more texture.  I decided I didn’t want to tie the bow everytime we used it so I put the stampin’ demimentionals  on the bottom part of the black tag only so I could slide the ribbon off the top.

game-night-scores-openInside Wendy had attached the notebook with sticky strip but I wanted to be able to replace it with out tearing my book so I decided to put a strip of DSP all the way across.  I only glued it down on one side.  Where the note book is I placed it in-between the card board back and the last sheet of paper.  Then I put sticky strip on each side of it.  This way I cold slip the note book out and put a new one in.

We love to play games with my family and I really loved having a way to keep score.  There is a little ribbon loop on the front that you can keep a pencil in.  This way we can keep this with all the games and then when we want to play we don’t have to find a notebook a paper.  Sometimes it’s also fun to see who won last time so it’s nice to have it all in one place.

Thrifty Thursday 2-12-09

valentines-heartToday we had to make lots of Valentine’s for my son’s classes.  So we decided to make the same fun project.  My son, Mikey had a lot of fun helping to make them.  Then we put them in bags so the candy would stay in when he gave them out.  I love making the Valentine’s because they get something fun and different. 

lots-of-valentinesIt was also nice because one of my other sons told me last minute that he need some as well.  He’s in middle school so I didn’t think he needed them.  Thankfully I had extra Candy and Paper already so it was easy to make more for him.  Once again Stampin’ Up!© saves the day.

Stampin’ Sunday 1-18-09

They have announced the Artisan Award Contest again so I’ve been thinking a lot about what I wanted to do.  This is a contest for any demonstrator who just wants to show off her stuff.  I like this contest because it’s based solely on your creativity so it’s great for anyone who got into Stampin’ Up! because they love to create and they aren’t working it as a business, but it’s also great for people like me who works the business and sometimes needs a little push to get the creative juices flowing. 

bugs-kisses-closedI have entered this contest every year since they started it.  This will be my third year.  I haven’t one yet, but I have had several of my items featured on the demonstrator website as well as at Convention.  I love seeing my things displayed and I love knowing that they liked something I did. 

So for this Swapping Sunday I though I would share the projects I made for the last 2 years.  I can’t share this year’s with you until after the contest (because of the rules.)  But i figured I could share the old ones with you.  Although some of the product is retired now I thought they still might inspire you. 

two-by-twoI have shown just a few of the samples here but you can click here to see all of them.
